Transcript

So, my favourite place in Canada is Toronto, Downtown Toronto, because it's very busy and there's a lot of very cool shops and stores, like skateboard stores and coffee shops, which look very nice when you go inside.

And the atmosphere is very laid-back, so people are very relaxed and they are just ready to have fun and to meet new people. So I would recommend for any tourist, when they visit Canada, to go to Downtown Toronto.

We also have the CN Tower in Downtown Toronto, which is one of the largest buildings in the world, so you can go up (in) the CN Tower, in the elevator, and you can go all the way to the top, which is very fun. A lot of tourists do it.

And that is what I really like about Canada... Downtown Toronto, best place to go.
